  Pea \Pea\, n.; pl. {Peas} (p[=e]z) or {Pease} (p[=e]z). [OE.
     pese, fr. AS. pisa, or OF. peis, F. pois; both fr. L. pisum;
     cf. Gr. pi`sos, pi`son. The final s was misunderstood in
     English as a plural ending. Cf. {Pease}.]
     1. (Bot.) A plant, and its fruit, of the genus {Pisum}, of
        many varieties, much cultivated for food. It has a
        papilionaceous flower, and the pericarp is a legume,
        popularly called a pod.
        [1913 Webster]
     Note: When a definite number, more than one, is spoken of,
           the plural form peas is used; as, the pod contained
           nine peas; but, in a collective sense, the form pease
           is preferred; as, a bushel of pease; they had pease at
           dinner. This distinction is not always preserved, the
           form peas being used in both senses.
           [1913 Webster]
     2. A name given, especially in the Southern States, to the

        of a different color from the rest of the seed.
        [1913 Webster]
     Note: The name pea is given to many leguminous plants more or
           less closely related to the common pea. See the
